Globalisation, technological change and the role of states and organisations
Do we really need global governance? On this course, you will examine the roles of states and non-state actors, such as international organisations, NGOs, TNCs and individuals, learning to describe, explain and problematise the concept of global governance and its central theories and perspectives. There is a focus on the drivers of global governance, including globalisation and technological change. You will also study the various forms of global governance, including different types of multilateralism and the varying ways of managing public and private authority and accountability, as well as applying theories and arguments about global governance to empirical cases
The course is based on lectures and seminars, and assessed via your participation in the seminars, including written assignments and a written report.
